Fix 'show version' in jessie-based VyOS
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Due to version file format change, 'show version' is very broken (cannot display, well, version).
There are other things that are broken, such as boot via display (this is due to overlayfs -> overlay name change).

Now it works again. The format is a bit different from original:

The branch/codename is missing, but if VyOS 1.x is going to maintenance mode, I'm not sure if we should even bother, if it stays "current" all the time. If anything, we can get it back.
